I started building some traffic lights …
A modelrailroad friend of mine, asked me for a solution to control his modelrailroad traffic lights. Because I also need some traffic lights at my new layout, I started building a configurable traffic light controller. We can not only control the main trafficlights for a whole crossroad, but also the lights for the pedestrians 🙂 Everything is configurable to the milli-second, for every possible imaginable traffic-light logic.
- This device does NOT work on 230V, it only uses 5V. (There is a mini USB 230V to 5V converter in the white plug)
- the switch on the right side, is screwed into the screw leads, normally it would be wired to a panel.
- With the switch, you can switch between “regular control” and “blinking yellow” …
- One would connect traffic lights from the modelrailroad road with wires to the screw connectors.
